' Grams McaiCAt Coxcert at New Washing
ton . 3fy design, is a brief desceiption of a
grand musical concert, given in this place, by
Messrs. Gourly, teachers of vocal and instru
mental music. On the evening of the 26th
ult., several singing schools, undur the super
intendance of the above named instructors,
met in the old log church, which was gorgeous
ly decorajed with wreaths of green hemlock
and pine, dotted here and there w ith artificial
flowers. Scholars and spectators made quite
an assemblage, and the old church was made to
groan In her very foundations with the oppres
sion of the large concourse of people. The
performance was extraordinary for this neigh
borhood. The execution of the different piec
es of vocal kivsfc was such as to reflect much
credit on both teachers and pupils ; and while
the scholars rested their voices, they were en
livened by tho singing of gles, duetts, na
tional airs, &c, by tho instructors, whose voi
ces were accompanied with the "Addle," sec
onded by the bass viol ; making our very
he arts to dance, nHd our heads, feet and hands
Involuntarily to strike time to their harmoni
ous, merry tones. - This science deserves more
attention tlin it has hitherto received amongst
H3, and we feel assured, judging from the in
terest manifested by old and young, that hence
forth it will receivt that share of our encour
agement which its attainment demands. The
performance was continued to a late hour,
uon appearing to tire of this delightful em
ployment. A collection was raised for the
benefit of the bass violinist, who, occasionally
during the term, had visited the various clas
ses. Some appropriate remarks wern offered,
l y a member of the Xew Washington class, on
ZZ.c able manner in which the teachers con
ducted tho different schools, and also as to the
benefit of singing societies in general, which
was followed by a unanimous vote of thanks to
tho teachers. Then all dispersed and every
thing was soon quiet, except occasionally the
Jinglo of bells, and of the large assemblage
nothing could be seen but rare glimpses of a
pair of beads, moving behind a snowbank.
I am informed that some of the b'hoys ap
plied the "heel and toe" accompaniment to
music, and continued their festival for some
time after the close of the consort, in shape af
a "breakdown;" and, in fact, such was the
furor created for mnsic, that the notes of Yan
kee Doodle, or Bloody Field of Buena Vista,
were heard next morning emanating from al
most avery house in our village, until the very
latest heur to which the performers could pro
tract their stay with us. A Spectator

days since, by several gentlemen in this place,
regarding tho quantity of water that the snow
which is now on'the ground would produce,
and the result arrived at was that it would
reach something like 11 inches. This seems
Urge, and may bo toa high,1mt tho calcula
tion was made from what was considered a fair
test. When the fact that there i3 not less than
thre feat of compact snow on the ground is
tsken intto consideration, the result will not
appear so astonishing.
It is said, Lorenzo Dow predicted that on
tho 27tb vf March, 185G, there would be the
highest waters known since the Flood, and in
1800 a war of extermination would take place
between Protestanism atl Catholicism, from
which the former would emerge victorious. So,
ff Lorenzo prophecies correctly, whilst people
along streams will have to be on the "look
out" for high waters, the Catholics will have
to prepare for "high times." Our "imp" says
he has constructed a pair of shanghai stilts for
the occasion and will be on hand to take notes
of the proceedings "on land and flood."

The editor of the- "Sunny South" must have
had a severe time of it recently. Hear him
n his xaper of the 7th of February : "The ed

KiDXAPn.vG. A negro boy was kidnapped
from Hainesport, Burlington county, N. J., a
few days since, and was taken south as far as
Baltimore, under pretence of obtaining work
in driving a wagon. While the kidnapper was
negotiating for his sale, the boy discovered
the game, and told his story to some persons,
who caused the arrest of his capturcr, w ho was
imprisoned, and will soon bo brought to Mount
Devastation or Ragoo.v. From Euruiah
intelligence has been received of a terrible
conflagration which devasted Ragodn on.tho
19th of December. In a few hours it destroy
ed eighteen brick warehouses, one hundred
and eighty timber houses, and three hundred
bamboo dwelling places. Water was not to be
procured in sufficient quantities, and a consid
erable amount of plunder was carried off. The
loss, estimated at 150,000, will fall upon Eu
British Canadian Reoikrxts. Our coun
trymen are very apt to get excited at any
movement on the part of Great Britain, and
therefore they look upon the return of regi
ments to Canada as "a speck of war." They
entirely overlook the fact that five out of the
eight regularly stationed Canadian regiments
were despatched to the Crimea," and in view of

A suit has been brought against the Roman
Catholic Bishop of Chicago, to recover under
a contract for building a church. The Bishop
denies the validity of the debt, as it was made
in his spiritual capacity. The courts ofllli
nois will, probably, permit him to pay in bis
spiritual capacity, if the distinction is of con
sequence to him ; but it is doubtful whether
the Bishop will thus be allowed, by a common
sense jury, to repudiate h"t3 obligations alto
gether on such Jesuitical grounds.
Sprixq Tides. On March 7, at 13 minutes
before 2 o'clock, A. M. there was a new moon,
and at half-past C o'clock the moon was in her
perigee. What effect the proximity of our
sattellite to its primary, at this conjunction,
may have on the weather, the 'National Intel
ligencer' says, we are unable to predict, but
spring tides in the higher latitudes, and a con
Biderable disturbance of the elements in tropi
cal regions will be the most probable conse
quence. The influence f these disturbances
will bo perceived in some degree in the tern
i pcrate zones. -
Pcrloisiso a River. There is a little con
troversy springing up brtween New York and
Pennsylvania, in relation to the Chemung riv
er. That river rises in Northern Pennsylvania,
flows rorthward into the State of New York,
and then turning southward, flows backward
into our State, and empties into the north
branch of the Susquehanna river Near Corn
ing, N. Y., the New-Yorkers have built a dam
across the Chemung river, in order to turn it
waters into Chemung canal. That canal extends
to the Seneca Lake, and discharges its waters
there. The outlet of the Seneca Lake is into
Lake Ontario. So that the water thus taken out
of the Chemung river is never restored to it,
so that when it returns into this State, its vol
ume is greatly reduced as a feeder of the Sus
quehanna river, and our public improvements
are injured. Our State government lias taken
the matter in band, and quite a difficulty may
arise out of it. Meadvillt (Pa.) Sentinel.
Dr. Beale, the Philadelphia dentist,-was
honored by the dentists of New York with a
public reception, on Friday last a week. Dr.
Bealo gave a history of his misfortunes, in
which he acquitted his accuser of all blame,
and expressed his belief that she was honest
in her convictions of his guilt. A committee
of Philadelphia ladies who subsequently wait
ed upon the mother-in-law of the prosecutrix,
to get assistance in obtaining his release,
learned from her that the family were well sat
isfied that the alleged offence had not been
committed. He thought the young lady and
her husband would long since have pronounced
him innocent, but for the fear that he would
prosecute them for damages, altho' Gi knew
he would do nothing of tho kind. However,
by the aid of his friends he had regained his
liberty, and was once more surrounded by his
family. Since his release he was happy to say
that some of the first and best men in Philadel
phia had given him strong proof of their be
lief in his innocence, by sending to his office
their wives and daughters unattended.
A Cave with a man is it. On the 20th ult,
a band of laborers on the Central Railroad, in
Allegheny county, Va.onCady's section, pea
etrated in a cave, the mouth of which was a
bout CO? feet from Jackson's river. Sonic of
the workmen entered it, and continuing out
their course, passed under the river and came
out on the other side of it. In the cave was
found tho dead body of a hunter, with all the
equipments lying near him. About $9000 in
bonds, payable to Mrs. Cross, and dated in
1823, were fouud on the body, which was in a
wonderful state of preservation. Tho bonds
are signed by many of the oldest citizens of
Allegheny and Bath counties.
